wHEN WE BOUGHT OUR HOME WE HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM. I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE AN ANSWER YET... BUT, THIS IS WHAT WE HAD TO DO. WE HAD TO REPLACE THE SEWER LINE FROM OUR HOUSE TO THE CITY LINE. THE MUD IN THE LINE MEANS THAT YOU HAVE A BROKEN PIPE. I HOPE YOU HAD A DIFFERENT PROBLEM... BUT THAT IS WHAT WE HAD TO DO. THE JOY OF HOME OWNERSHIP
: I just bought a house for the first time. I have just one bathroom. My tub is slow to drain and the
: toilet does not flush properly. I have talked with some buddies and they said to rent a rooter machine.
: I rented one and went through the toilet closet. I got the snake to go the 100' of line I had. When I pulled
: it back I had some roots. I sent it back through and got stopped. When I pulled it back this time the
: blade had mud on it. My house was built in 1967 and I cannot find a cleanout. How can I replace the pipe
: and install a cleanout. I looked at some of the problems others have had and do not know if my city has
: "as-builts" on microfilm as you advised another person. HELP ME PLEASE!!!
: Thank you in advance.
